318 NOTES AND QUERIES. [12 S.X.APRIL 22, 1922. "CoGET" (12 S. x. 230). The g in the above should be q, as Bailey's ' Dictionary ' (A.D. 1747) has the following : Cockington, a village in Devonshire, probably I so called from great cockfightings kept there. J. W. DE HERINGESHAE (12 S. x. 248). Is not | this the modern Sherringham, near Cromer, j Norfolk ? J. W. SIR HENRY JOHNSON OF POPLAR (12 S. x. 249). From private family papers I note j that Sir Henry Johnson's mother was j " Dorothy " Lord. But in Lysons's ' En- j virons of London,' under the heading of j either Poplar or Blackwall, her name is | given as " Mary." I quote from Lysons : | Sir Henry Johnson married Mary, daughter j and heiress of William Lord, Esq., of Melton, j in Kent, by whom he had two sons, Henry and > William. Personally, I should be very grateful for i any facts concerning William, who became Governor of Cape Coast Castle and died ; there in 1718. He married, secondly, ! Agneta, daughter of Captain Hartgill Baron, j Secretary to Prince Rupert. I made in- quiries lately regarding the Barons at ante, p. 92. <MRS.) A. N. GAMBLE. RUVIGNY'S PLANTAGENET ROLLS (12 S. x. 4g). MR. W. G. D. FLETCHER states that it was the intention of the late Marquis de Ruvigny to bring out a series of volumes embracing all the known descendants of King Edward III. a most formidable task ! I have somewhere seen it stated that there are some 30,000 families able to trace their descent from this monarch. Can this statement be verified ? T. PORTRAIT OF LADY HARRINGTON (12 S. x. 227). If negative evidence is of any value it may interest your correspondent to know that there is no portrait of the Countess mentioned in ' A.L.A. Portrait Index : Index to Portraits contained in printed Books and Periodicals ' (1906). This being an American publication it may not be known to MR. BLEACKLEY. H. TAPLEY-SOPER. HOLBORN, MIDDLE Row (12 S. x. 94, 239). According to Wheatley's ' London Past and Present ' the demolition of Middle Row was begun Aug. 31, 1867, and " the roadway over it was opened in the follow- ing December." The same authority states that the removal of Middle Row cost 61,000. G. F. R. B. GRAFTON, OXON (12 S. v. 320; vi. 51, 153). Several correspondents kindly sup- plied me with information in regard to this manor. I notice, in several rolls of arms, Tayler of Grafton, Oxon, Ermine, on a chief indented gules, three escallop shells arg. ; crest, A lion's head erased arg. ducally gorged or. Can anyone identify this family and state their connexion with Grafton ? References to printed pedigrees would be appreciated. In a parchment MS. these arms are quoted as those of James Tayler, Esq., of Grayton, or Greyton, in the county of Oxfordshire. Is there a place of that name ? A. W. WALLIS -TAYLER. Beulah Cottage, Tatsfield, near Westerham. ROYAL ANTEDILUVIAN ORDER OF BUFFALOES (12 S. x. 229). See 4 S. iii. 106, 267 ; iv. 124, 3729 S. ix. 134. I have not in my possession the above series, but only the Indices. I remember reading, whether in 'N. & Q.' I forget, that this Friendly Society was founded as the result of a joke, about 100 years ago. I believe that much good fellowship and charity have been the outcome of the institution of the Order. HERBERT SOUTHAM. [MR. HERBERT CLAYTON, at the last reference, states that seven works upon this subject (the earliest published in 1893) will be found entered in the British Museum Catalogue.] LAMBERT FAMILY (12 S. x. 182, 232). With further reference to George Lambert of Dundalk, it may be of interest to note that in the charter granted to that town by Charles II., dated March 4, 1673, his name appears as one of the first burgesses, and that he was the issuer of a seventeenth- century token reading " George Lambert of Dundalk, Marchant." L. L. F. jjotes on The Ballads of Marko Kraljevich. Translated by D. H. Low. (Cambridge University Press. 15s. net.) THE imagination must have stiffened quite unduly, and the fighting enthusiasms of boyhood have been overlaid more deeply than they ever need be, in the reader who can fail to be ex- hilarated by these ballads or to perceive in them that special thrill or touch which makes the last indescribable secret of the Iliad and the Odyssey. Few English readers, perhaps, will ever come to enjoy the full charm of the original ; nor can the transference of their beauty of form into English be reasonably hoped for. Nevertheless, what Mr. Low aptly calls their " stark presentment of Marko ,when,as here,preserved,suffices to carry over
